Save Lives with Eastern PA Down Syndrome Center!

Save Lives with Eastern PA Down Syndrome Center!

Thursday, 01 - Friday, 30 September, 2022

In honor of Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Eastern PA Down Syndrome Center has generously adopted the month of September to host Blood Drives at Miller-Keystone Blood Center’s Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Hamilton & Reading Donor Centers!

Down syndrome or constitutional trisomy 21 (OMIN#190685) was linked to leukemia
for the first time in a case report published in 1930.1 Since then, Down syndrome
has been recognized as one of the most important leukemia-predisposing syndromes and
patients with Down syndrome and leukemia have unique clinical features and significant differences
in treatment response and toxicity profiles compared to patients without Down syndrome.

If business or time constraints are too challenging for your organization to run an on-site bloodmobile drive,
MKBC’s Adopt-A-Day program offers partnering organizations the flexibility of enabling employees, family and friends
to host a blood drive at one of our Donor Centers and be recognized in the community!
